I've been playing around with AI servo past couple days and trying to determine whether expanded AF is better for my needs. The focal point I'm getting from the small info screen in the playback on camera is hard to match up against a bigger sized image on LR on my PC.

Also want to make sure my lens isn't back/front focusing.

Which option (if any) allows you to display focal point?

TIA

I had a feeling you were going to say that. Now I have to go and dig up that disc. Hopefully I can download newer version from somewhere because my copy is from 4+ years ago

You can download the updated version of DPP from Canon USA. Here is the link. Make sure you choose the correct OS you are running. This link is for Win 7 (x64).
Also, you may have to install the original DPP software from your old disc then update. Hope this helps. http://www.usa.canon.c​om …ark_ii#DriversA​ndSoftware (external link)

You don't need the disk. Do a bit of Googling for DPP 1.0, download it, then download the updated version. I got it last weekend this way. (no idea where my disk is)

Actually I got it from this guys post on Flickr, but now I only see the updater listed on Canon's link.

Another method is to go to Canon's 1D site and grab it by entering "12345" or any 5 digit number for a serial number.

awesome. thanks, all. I got I think what is the newest version.

Looks like my lens is pretty much spot on. Might need a tiny little micro adjustment. And I actually did better than I thought on hitting the square on the eye. But of course, on the 5Dc, there's no room for error.
